Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, Laurence Fishburne, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Hugo Weaving
Directed by Larry Wachowski, Andy Wachowski
A glorious mess, this hotly anticipated sequel to history's most mind-altering action flick leapfrogs from yawn-inducing monologues to jaw-dropping chase and chop-socky sequences. Watching the storyboards come to life in the slick behind-the-scenes segment redoubles your sense of the directors' staggering technical achievement. But "extras" on the making of the movie-branded sports-drink ad campaign and the universally panned video game remind us that the real Matrix is programmed by marketers.
